Justin Bond & Jimmy Scott shows, Joe’s Pub closing for repair, Martha Wainwright & others playing Cooper Square Hotel
Catch Justin even sooner when he joins Rufus Wainwright and Liza Minelli as the special guests performing with Sandra Bernhard at Town Hall tonight (6/8).
Speaking of Joe’s Pub and Wainwrights, tickets go on sale today (6/8) for the Summer Salon Series that Joe’s Pub and The Annie O. Music Series are hosting at the Cooper Square Hotel. Why at the hotel? Because Joe’s is closing for a few months…
Joe’s Pub, a vital part of New York City’s cultural landscape, announced a three month hiatus in programming, beginning July 2, to undertake an interior redesign and renovation. During this temporary closure, Joe’s Pub will be continuing its dedication to presenting a wide variety of performing arts at affordable ticket prices to the New York and, specifically East Village community. Serving more than 100,000 audience members and presenting over 800 performances annually, this is the first time in 13 years of operation that Joe’s Pub has closed its doors for an extended period of time.
“We knew our artists and audiences would be going through withdrawal this summer without the wealth of shows to choose from at Joe’s Pub,” said Joe’s Pub Director Shanta Thake. “This summer salon series will be a great opportunity to see artists in an intimate space with beautiful views of the city while the staff of Joe’s Pub prepares for our incredible fall programming.”
The salon performances, which will take place in the hotel’s scenic 21st-floor penthouse, are open to the public and will represent the quality and diversity of programming which is paramount to the mission of Joe’s Pub. In addition to the performances, concert attendees will have access to a breathtaking, 360-degree view of Manhattan from the penthouse’s floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around terrace. Drinks will be available for purchase from a full bar.
Martha Wainwright also plays a much sooner show at the same Cooper Square Hotel on June 19. The show is free with RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
